FYE Thrive Event Submissions

We are excited to welcome submissions for potential FYE Thrive events!

Thrive Event Series: A Thrive event is intended to reach a critical mass of the first year class, and therefore should be an event that touches on a key part of the university’s mission and the mission of the First Year Experience. Thrive events should use storytelling or engaging narratives to broaden students’ understanding of key topics including but not limited to Jesuit, Catholic mission and identity, social justice and responsibility, college transition and culture shock, curricular and co-curricular planning, , identity development, health and wellness, civic engagement, and global perspectives etc.

Thrive event recommendations/requirements to keep in mind:  

  •  For approval, these events must be able to accommodate a large quantity (300 plus) of first year students.
  • The event should be in a location with limited entry and exit points (i.e Gonzaga Auditorium, Oak Room, Quick Center) for swiping purposes.
  • The event should be free of charge for students.
  • Fair style events must have a mechanism to require students to spend some engaged time at the event. I.e. a required amount of tables visited and tracked prior to swiping.

To submit a thrive event or propose a collaboration, please email Danielle Parisi, Program Coordinator at dparisi@fairfield.edu . The deadline for Thrive Series submissions is by August 16th.
